ordered the stuff to build my own forwards. I might have to order a new brake line. i should have parts weds and hopefully mocked up for pics by next weekend.
yep id been shopping for parts a while, took me a bit, mast cyl is 60 bucks and pegs w/ bolt on clevis were around 80, but kept running into a dead end with brake lever, the harley ones jack the price up a bit, but sofar im in for 300 pending needing no new brake line if everything goes fairly smooth (including chrome). I ended up buying a set for a harley and am just going to remake the mounting bracket to fit the fury, figured would give me matching pegs, toe pegs, and matching levers. my forwards will be in tomorrow and im off thursday and friday, so should be able to get some work done. Im just hoping all the schematics to this set i saw work out for adapting to the fury.oh yeah, he's on a roll now.
They are Bikers Choice Gladiators, I forget how much they are, just know what my credit card is upto I think like 250ish-300 is what they run. Im hoping i can get enough stretch without swapping my brake line since i already have a braded line. That and deciding between black or chrome bracket will determine time for them to be fully functional.How much are those controls? I am very interested in seeing how this turns out.
I got the plans drawn up, my matching grips ment for a harley on too (pull switch housings, grind off the catch pin and slide them out further). Weather is horrible right now, so cant really leave house, my truck spins way too easily on damp roads and its soaked.sweet! Keep us posted on the progress
I got mine with the matching grips for 250 off ebay. Getting ready to run out to a gig tonight, going to stop by hardware store and do some shopping. I might just hand fab the brackets for now then mill them laterI've got grips ment for HD also sounds like we had to do the same thing but it worked out fine. I looked up the forwards you are useing they show a price of a little over 500.00 still alot cheaper that any I have seen so far.
Somewhat. You gotta make sure the way the shift arm hooks into the linkage is within a certain size, be able to aim shift arm down (harleys are up). Then you gotta template it out for the stretch you want, use about a 1/2" bushing to push the control out from the plate because depending on the stretch you want, you may have the bolts from plate to frame under the control.I'm a pretty tall guy. What would stop me from taking any forward control set i wanted to have and making a mounting plate forward and out to line up the bolt holes? It seems like a 3"x3"x1/4" aluminum plate would bridge the gap between most models. Make a shift linkage and buy a brake line... am I over simplifying it?
make sure you like the way they look, your capible of getting shift linkage hooked up and wont drag shift linkage arm on the ground, and they have separate master cyl. i spent alot of time around different bikes and was brainstorming on every bike i sawI appreciate the input. I don't want to carbon copy your work, how did you go about deciding which set of controls were going to work? A one inch picture on the internet is not going to cut it for me to guess if it will fit. I would guess a simple bolt pattern on one basic plate would work best. These ain't got to be beautiful, just forward. How did you shop around?
the ones I used were for mid 80's-99 HD FXST, other harleys and bigdogs. I was able to flip the shift arm to linkage part so it was oriented right for the fury, with picking them up a hair over stock and pushing them out the 3 1/2 they are forward the arm is slightly low, but no issues for my test ride, Im just waiting for the brake linegonna have to pay attention to something other than the women at the next bike show.... difficult. thanks for the help.
